Summary

This data-file was used to conduct the national study "Exploring Orthodox Generosity: Giving in US Orthodox Parishes." The nationally representative sample includes over 2,800 respondents - the lay-members of US various Orthodox Christian Churches. The study had three main goals:

1. To examine patterns and trends in religious giving among Orthodox Church members: both to their home parishes (congregations) and to wider religious causes;

2. To explore differences in giving between members of various Orthodox jurisdictions (denominations) and between various categories of parishioners (in particular, between various generations and between cradle Orthodox and converts to Orthodoxy);

3. To learn what might be done to increase "generosity" of church members.

The ARDA has added four additional variables to the original data set to enhance the users' experience on our site.
